Flannel Board Friday: Clean and Dirty Pigs

Another flannel board for you this Friday!

Double sided pigs!


I made the pigs using pink felt and a diecut machine. Glue on some googly eyes to both sides, and using a brown marker, draw mud splotches on one side. Pretty easy, but really fun to use. (This is an old set, you can kinda see the splotches on the "clean" side now. I should make a new set!)

Here are some rhymes to use:

Place the pigs on the flannel board one at a time, muddy side out.

1 little 2 little 3 little piggies
4 little 5 little 6 little piggies
7 little 8 little 9 little piggies
10 piggies playing in the mud!

For the next verse, turn them over one by one, so they see the clean side.

1 little 2 little 3 little piggies
4 little 5 little 6 little piggies
7 little 8 little 9 little piggies
10 piggies took a bath!

Here's one from Mel's Desk that I recently used in storytime:

to the tune of "5 Green and Speckled Frogs"

Five pigs so squeaky clean
Cleanest you’ve ever seen
Wanted to go outside and play
Oink! Oink!
One jumped into the mud
Landed with a big thud
Then there were four clean squeaky pigs.

Round up today is over at What Happens in Storytime...

0-2: Fish

to the tune of Happy Birthday

Good morning to you
Good morning to you
We’re glad that you’re here
Good morning to you

Way up in the sky, the little birds fly,
While down in the nest, the little birds rest.
With a wing to the left, and a wing to the right,
The little birds sleep all through the night.
Shhhhh! They’re sleeping!
The bright sun comes up, the dew falls away,
"Good Morning, Good Morning!" the little birds say.

One, two, three, four, five.
Once I caught a fish alive,
Six, seven, eight, nine ,ten,
Then I let it go again.
Why did you let it go?
Because it bit my finger so.
Which finger did it bite?
This little finger on the right.

Book: Hooray for Fish! by Lucy Cousins

to the tune of "I'm a Little Teapot"
I'm a little fishy, watch me swim
Here is my tail, here is my fin,
When I want to have fun with my friends,
I wiggle my tail and dive right in!

This is big big big (Hold arms out to side)
This is small small small (Cup hands together)
This is short short short (Hold hands with palms facing each other)
This is tall tall tall (Reach one hand above head)
This is fast fast fast (Circle fists quickly)
This is slow slow slow (Circle fists slowly)
This is yes yes yes (Nod)
This is no no no (Shake head)

Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)
The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck one, the mouse ran down
Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)

Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)
The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck two, the mouse said “woo”
Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)

Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)
The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck three, the mouse said “wee”
Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)

Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)
The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck four, the mouse said “no more”
Hickory dickory dock (tick tock, tick tock)

Pease porridge hot, pease porridge cold
Pease porridge in the pot, 9 days old
Some like it hot, some like it cold
Some like it in the pot, 9 days old

Five little fishes swimming in a pool (wiggle five fingers)
First one said, "The pool is cool." (one finger up) (wrap arms around body)
Second one said, "The pool is deep." (two fingers up) (hands measure deep)
Third one said, "I want to sleep." (three fingers up) (rest head on hands)
Fourth one said, "Let's dive and dip." (four fingers up) (hand dives and dips)
Fifth one said, "I spy a ship." (five fingers up) (peer out under hand)
Fisherman's boat comes (fingers form V and move away from body
Line goes ker-splash (pantomime throwing fishing line)
Away the five little fishes dash (wiggle five fingers away)

to the tune of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat"

Roll, roll, roll your hands,
As slowly as can be.
Roll, roll, roll your hands,
Do it now with me.
Roll, roll, roll your hands,
As fast, as fast can be.
Roll, roll, roll your hands,
Do it now with me.
Clap, clap, clap your hands…
Shake, shake, shake your hands…
Stamp, stamp, stamp your feet…

Song:Shake My Sillies Out by Raffi, performed by me.

to the tune of "You Are My Sunshine"

You have two arms, they are for waving
You have two feet to go stump stump
You have to eyes, they are for blinking
And a bottom to sit with a bump

Five little fishes were swimming near the shore;
One took a dive and then there were four.
Four little fishes were swimming out to sea;
One went for food, and then there were three.
Three little fishes, "Now what shall we do?"
One swam away, and then there were two.
Two little fishes were having great fun;
But one took a plunge, then there was one.
One little fish, "I like the warm sun."
Away he went and then there were none.

Book: Fish Wish by Bob Barner

Patty cake, patty cake
Baker’s man
Bake me a cake as fast as you can!
Roll it, and pat it
And mark it with a B
And throw it in the oven for baby and me!

Clap baby’s hands for the first three lines. When rolling the cake, roll your hands, and then pat your knees when patting the cake. Draw a B on baby’s hand or tummy when marking the cake and mime throwing it
in the oven at the end.


to the tune of "Shortnin’ Bread"

Every little cell in my body is happy
Every little cell in my body is well
Every little cell in my body is happy
Every little cell in my body is well
I’m so glad every little cell
In my body is happy and well
I’m so glad every little cell
In my body is happy and well
Every little cell in my body is happy
Every little cell in my body is well

To the tune of “Happy Birthday”

Goodbye to you
Goodbye to you
We’re glad that you came
Goodbye to you

Hickory Dickory Dock

One elephant went out to play
Upon a spider’s web one day
He had such enormous fun
He called another elephant to come
HEY, ELEPHANT!
Two elephants went out to play...

"Flannel" Board:


So, I had a bunch of paper diecuts of people left-over from something else. I drew a (poor) picture of a bed on the marker board side of the board and taped 10 diecuts on, taking one off as they fell off the bed.

10 in the bed and the little one said, roll over, roll over
So they all rolled over and one fell out
And bumped his head and began to shout
9 in the bed and the little one said, roll over, roll over...



Flannel Board:

So this one is an actual flannel board. I'll do a Flannel Board Friday post on it tomorrow.

to the tune of "Five Green and Speckled Frogs"

Five pigs so squeaky clean
Cleanest you’ve ever seen
Wanted to go outside and play
Oink! Oink!
One jumped into the mud
Landed with a big thud
Then there were four clean squeaky pigs.

Dog's Colorful Day: A Messy Story About Colors and Counting by Emma Dodd

to the tune of "If You're Happy and You Know It"

If you're sleepy and you know it, great big yawn
If you're sleepy and you know it, say good night...
If you're sleepy and you know it, start to snore...
If you're sleepy and you know it, do all three...

Stars shining number, number 1, number 2, number 3
Good night, say good night

Stars shining number, number 4, number 5, number 6
Good night, say good night

Stars shining number, number 7, number 8, number 9
Good night, say good night
It's time to sleep, and say good night.
